The second issue of Rol Hirst’s Too Much Sex & Violence is out now, and it’s great! I drew three particularly nasty pages for this issue, and I can honestly say that I have never enjoyed drawing anything as much as I enjoyed drawing the nasty bits on my pages, which probably makes me a bit weird, considering what is going on in those panels. Other pages are provided by Stephen Prestwood, Neil Cavenham, Dave Metcalfe-Carr, Nigel Lowrey, Mark Renhard, Ryan Taylor, and Tony McGee, all of whom did an excellent job.
Rol has created some great characters for this series, has cleverly juggled the scenes to allow for a rotating crew of artists, and has produced a really, really strong script. I am a fan of Rol’s writing anyway, but I was honestly surprised by how good this issue is. It’s much better than the first issue, and that was bloody good.
TMS&V issues one and two (I also drew two pages in the first issue) are available to order from Rol for £2.50 each (including postage within the UK). Alternatively, both Gosh and Orbital in London have the first issue (Orbital definitely still have a few copies left, I’m not sure about Gosh) and if you are an Ace Comics customer, I know that Biff also has the first issue (it may be available elsewhere, but you’ll have to ask Rol). Hopefully, the same establishments will soon have this excellent second issue, too.
